Laurent van Lancker

Laurent van Lancker 
Documentary Film Directing | B 
Seminar Lecturer and Film Exercises Mentor (2013)

Graduation Semester MDP 
Mentor (2014)

Laurent van Lancker both studied Filmmaking (IAD) and Anthropology (MA, M.Phil. in SOAS, London).  

His early documentaries illuminate social, religious and artistic aspects of different cultures, e.g. Ymako (Basil Wright Price at the RAI film festival 1998) or Moving with the Clouds (Prix Jeunes, Festival Cinema d’Asie 1999). 

Although his latest three works are experimental travel diaries (Eth(n)ics, Trente et une nuits: mes rencontres palestiniennes, Rétroviseurs), he has also recently made short fiction films, dance-videos, and is currently finishing a first (and surrealist) long feature documentary. 

He’s an occasional lecturer in audiovisual anthropology and documentary in universities such as UGent, Sint-Lukas (Belgium), SOAS (London) or Kunming (China), and one of the founders of Polymorfilms and VOX (a media-activist collective). He also runs creative audiovisual workshops and has curated several film programmes for Cinema Nova in Brussels. 

For Laurent Van Lancker, every project is like a new performance, in which a dialogue between form and content, ethics and aesthetics, political and poetical realms is to be found.
